However, former Liverpool defender Jose Enrique appeared to take something else from the match, and it might have something to do with his affection for the Merseyside outfit.
It was Reds forward Diogo Jota who scored both of Portugal's goals, as he continues his comeback from the knee injury that has ruled him out of the Christmas period and subsequent months.

With Manchester United talisman Bruno Fernandes and former Old Trafford favourite Cristiano Ronaldo unable to make their mark on the game - excepting Ronaldo's late non-goal, Enrique took his chance to land a barb on the pair.

The Spaniard referred to both as penalty merchants, claiming that Jota carried them through the game - even injuring his back in doing so.
Jota has only returned to action this month following the knee injury that cut short a great run of form earlier in the season.
During his time on the sidelines, the forward has seen his side's Premier League title challenge implode, and the team even look like they could miss out on Champions League qualification.
With nine games left to play, the 24-year-old will be hoping he can play his part in turning around the team's fortunes. He has made a good start with this, scoring the winner against Wolves before the international break.
